In honor of May the 4th, we’ve transformed our progress bar into a lightsaber, added a star-field background to our navbar, and given a special date treatment to commemorate this important day for “Star Wars” fans. And if you look closely, you’ll find a surprise homage to the film’s iconic opening crawl on the page. (Hint: Check out the row of share icons.)
From initial idea to launch, we had about two and a half days to make it happen. So our team of four developers and one designer took a divide-and-conquer approach to make sure everything came in ahead of deadline.
Thanks to the team behind the project:
Troy Dunham on design;
Mike Dorfman, Aviva Kerstein, Alexander Sapountzis, Jeremy Toussaint and Miri Ullman on development and QA;
Bill Bradley, Marc Janks and Lauren Moraski on news.
